Log message:
Bump all packages that depend on curses.bui* or terminfo.bui* since they
might incur ncurses dependencies on some platforms, and ncurses just bumped
its shlib.
Some packages were bumped twice now, sorry for that.

Update to 2.8.8rel2:

2014-03-09 (2.8.8rel.2)
* correct errata in test-files which cause broken links in break-out directory
  in lynx.isc.org server -TD
* amend change from 2.8.8pre.2, to ensure that MinGW libraries already
  declaring 'sleep()' will build -TD
* drop unused save/compress rules from makefile.in, because fixing umask for
  these is pointless -TD
* modify makefile.in to establish sane umask value in the \ 
"install-doc" rule
  (report by Rajeev V Pillai) -TD
* build-fix for NetBSD, whose curses library provides use_default_colors(),
  but the package turns off the keymap feature (patch by Thomas Klausner).

  bug in cygwin's make/sed programs -TD

  an "Accept:" line sent to the server (Debian #725178) -TD
* trim unexpected query-parameters from file: URIs when checking for their
  presentation and compression types.  Not all browsers do this, etc. -TD
* modify forms-submit to trim query-parameters from the action URI if it
  happens to be a file-URL.  IE and some other browsers do this. The RFCs
  do not mention this since forms are an HTTP feature (Debian #738121) -TD

  others which could be useful for dumps (i.e., force_html, hiddenlinks,
  listonly, list_inline, localhost, short_url, with_backspaces) -TD:
* add dont_wrap_pre to lynx.cfg (request by GV) -TD

  (report by Klaus-Peter Wegge)
* disable EXP_JAPANESEUTF8_SUPPORT if the system has no iconv support -TD
* modify makefiles to perform the src/chrtrans rules from the top-level rather
  than via the src-level, solving the issue of "makefile races" -TD
* reviewed minor fixes from OpenBSD CVS for these issues:
  - fix makefile races [espie]
  - read/write result checking fixes to avoid unsigned comparisons vs -1 [krw]
  However, the former is not an improvement; kept only the latter -TD

2014-01-11 (2.8.8pre.3)
* apply analogous changes to tidytls.c interface -TD

  to omit the SSLv2 and compression features (report by BJP) -TD
* add check for alternate package "libssl" also used with Fedora20 -TD
* fix a check in configure-script for openssl subdirectory in includes. It

* build-fix for --disable-prettysrc (reported by Don Hsi-Yun Yang aka

* allow fallback sleep() function to be used for MinGW -GV
* remove special case in configure.in which added "-lcompat" to $LIBS
  for OpenBSD, MirBSD and EkkoBSD (Christian Weisgerber, Thorsten Glaser).
* build-fix for --disable-forms-options -TD
* omit request for admin-access in NullSoft installer, since lynx could be
  installed in user's directory -TD
* change Windows default for LYNX_LSS_FILE to not use a directory-path -TD

  contains spaces -TD
* reduce required privileges for installing in lynx.iss -TD

  Previous fixes to highlight arbitrarily long links overlooked this case
  (Debian #546264) -TD
* modify the INFO page, normally bound to "=", to show decoded strings for
  URLs, e.g., which use %xy hexadecimal encoding.  The decoded strings are
  shown on the line following the encoded URLs if the strings are different.
  Also if display-charset is UTF-8, modify -dump "References" URLs to show
  the corresponding decoded strings for consistency with the text which is
  already in UTF-8.  Other URLs such as that shown in the status area are
  shown in encoded form per previous discussion which recommending doing this
  to address phishing attempts (Debian #398274) -TD
* simplify file-URLs shown in reference list of -dump by trimming unnecessary

  (Debian #334787) -TD

  + CF_ACVERSION_CHECK, fix from byacc for "newer" autoconf.
  + CF_ADD_LIB_AFTER, fix from xterm for problem with -Wl,xxx options
  + CF_CURSES_LIBS, modify to allow external script to set $cf_term_lib and/or
  + CF_MIXEDCASE_FILENAMES, add msys / msysdll to known host/platform types

  + CF_X_ATHENA, trim extra X libraries after updating lists, to work with ld
    --as-needed option which in effect uses only the first mention of the
    library.  If that does not follow everything that depends on the library,
    ld will silently fail to resolve symbols.

  openssl 1.0.1e (prompted by report/patch by Supriyo Biswas) -TD

  when using MinGW build, since the WSAxxx values are what the configuration
  actually uses -TD
* modify <address> tag to treat it like <p> when used within a list -TD
* update fi.po from
* add on/off toggles to options menu for the color-style and default-colors
  features, to help deal with packages which enable default colors without

    variable conv_jisx0201kana

  + add feature ifdef'd with USE_PROGRAM_DIR which adds fallback definitions
    for pathnames to use the directory of lynx.exe
  + add check for unsafe filenames in DOS/Windows, e.g., those that correspond
    to a device.
* update command-line syntax for the blat mailer, to work with blat 2.6.2 -TD
* change default in makelynx.bat to assume blat rather than blatj, because
  the latter does not provide a way to authenticate user/password on a mail
  server -TD
* change #define's for addrlist-page and alt-bindings to reflect their
  non-experimental status -TD
* change default for --enable-addrlist-page configure option to enabled -TD

  Define USE_ALT_BLAT_MAILER to specify which is the default (prompted by
  report by LarryL) -TD
* correct an interaction between LYCloseOutput() and LYRemoveTemp() as used in
  send_file_to_mail(), to allow a temporary file to be closed and used by

  declaration of "off_t" (report/analysis by Rod Reiger) -TD

* amend change to cookie prefix matching from Debian #460108.  The discussion
  overlooked this definition from RFC 2109:
   Path   Defaults to the path of the request URL that generated the
          Set-Cookie response, up to, but not including, the
          right-most /.
  In that context, lynx was correct to extract the default "path" attribute
  rather than
  as asserted in the report.  However, lynx warned unnecessarily (according to
  the bug report) about the given path attribute.  Deciding whether to suppress
  this warning is under control of the user via the lynx.cfg setting
